Westpac Helicopter assists with car accident in Mangatawhiri

On Saturday 4 November 2017, at around 4.17pm the crew from the Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter were tasked to Mangatawhiri to assist both Tuakau and Mercer volunteer fire brigade crews, who were attending to a male and female patient in their 70s. They had lost control of their vehicle and their car ended up in a ditch on the other side of the road, on its side and facing the opposite direction.

The male patient suffered a head injury and was flown to Middlemore Hospital in a serious condition.
